Welcome to the Women's and Gender Studies Research Guide.

Women's and gender studies is a field of study that explores the ways gender impacts how we think, how we live, and how we understand ourselves and others. Though the field historically focused on the lives of women, contemporary women's and gender studies research, scholarship and pedagogy emphasizes the ways that gender, race, class, age, sexuality, ability, and size work together.
